Sihirbazlar Kralı Mandrake Kiling’in Peşinde (Kilink Vs Mandrake) is a Turkish film from 1967. For the uninitiated, Kilink is a supervillain who habitually wears a skeleton suit while doing his evil deeds. Mandrake the magician steals a princess' crown jewels as a prank, and then Kilink steals them from Mandrake. Together with Abdullah, his blackface-wearing sidekick, Mandrake must recover the jewels. Much mayhem and many manly mustaches ensue. It was directed by Oksal Pekmezoğlu and stars Güven Erte. Luckily, there are (awkward) English subtitles. This movie is recommended for lovers of old Turkish movies and fans of psychotronic cinema.

More Turkish Movie Madness
Kilink has returned! For the uninitiated, Kilink is a Turkish supervillain in a skeleton suit. In this movie he goes up against Mandrake the magician. Mandrake's assistant is a hulking Turk in blackface. After Mandrake steals a crown from a princess, Kilink steals it from Mandrake. I just can't get enough of these crazy old Turkish movies. This one has subtitles, which is nice, although their creator probably spoke English as a fourth language. All the Kilink movies are worth a watch for cult movie fans. A number of them can be found on IA.
